The 32GB bug in Award BIOS that prevents many users from using HDD larger than 32GB (BIOS hangs at detection) can be easily fixed in existing BIOSes. This means that if there's no BIOS for your board that supports HDDs over 32GB but supports up to 32GB, it can be fixed. The 64GB bug that causes hang at configuration table can be also fixed. Fixed and tested BIOSes will be on this page.

18466069 visitors since June 2002

These BIOSes are fixed to support HDDs over 32GB (up to 64GB) or over 64GB (up to 128GB) and are tested to work.
Use them at your own risk.
